Publisher's Description of ActiveLaunch

" Everything is open just a few mouse-clicks or key hits away. "
- From GSI Software Research

Do you want to select several documents and open them at once? Very often you have to launch the same applications several times. Do you want to open things not using your mouse only, but also using your keyboard, never having to memorize the multitude of hotkeys? Then this utility is designed for you.

ActiveLaunch is a utility providing you with the opportunity to faster open frequently used applications, documents, and folders using both the mouse and the keyboard. ActiveLaunch main window looks similar to a regular folder window in My Computer with icons reflected in it being analogues to Windows shortcuts. Different sections can be created as subfolders. However in the work with ActiveLaunch there are some peculiarities, if compared to the work with Windows shortcuts: ActiveLaunch window can be faster reached by clicking the tray icon or by pressing the hotkey (default is Alt + Backspace); any icon can be assigned to any key, thus pressing the corresponding key would launch the necessary item; while holding Ctrl you can select desired icons and launch corresponding objects (e.g. folders, files, and web pages) at once; to open all items of either current or selected section you can use Open All command from the main window right-click menu or attain the same result keeping Ctrl key in the pressed position during the opening of a section.

After launching an application, opening a document or a folder the ActiveLaunch window is automatically closed. To add icons you can either use the menu or the Windows Drag&Drop technology. However, in some Windows versions, drives and My Documents folder can be added only through the menu. For example, if you want to create an icon for your CD-ROM drive in Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, you should go to the File menu, click Add Folder, and select your CD-ROM drive in the list of drives available.
